Lalins Column: HRCSL –Disgraced and Disgraceful

One thing is clear. The government doesn’t give a fig or a jot for the Human Rights Commission Of Sri Lanka (HRCSL). It is clear that it decided to implement the death penalty after 42 years without consulting the HRCSL. The extremely late objection by the HCRSL on the absolutely indefensible decision of the government to resume executions shows that the HRCSL has been taken totally unawares. It is obvious that it was totally ignored by the government on probably the most crucial HR issue of the time.
